Yesterday on my way to Media Pennsylvania the rain suddenly poured down like crazy. On RT 476 it was just a slow traffic all around but when I turned into a smaller street with hills and valleys I did not expect the water to run like a rushing river especially along the shoulders. Since the rain was so heavy and the visibility was at best 10 yards and as I was coming down the hill I saw the huge mass of water coming towards me really fast! wash was suddenly slowed down by the full force and the impact was so much that the water rushed onto half of the hood at which point I was trying to move to the center lane but the car wouldn't steer as fast as I like. I came up to the second hill and waded through a foot or so running water then decided to pull into a gas station. Later I popped up the hood and found leaves, debris and water marks everywhere! I was happy and surprised that my v got through that without any problems. The door seals also held tight and showed only water left around the "outside" edges of the door frames. It was the scariest moment for me though. The wiper was at full speed!!
